  • Description

    THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE, PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, RECEIVED A ROUSING WELCOME FROM HIS PEOPLE EARLY THIS WEEK, WHEN HE VISITED KONGPONG CHAM, ABOUT 80 MILES NORTHEAST OF PHNOM PENH. HIS VISIT WAS TO LAY THE FOUNDATION STONE FOR A ROYAL UNIVERSITY.

    THE PRINCE ALSO MADE AN ON-THE-SPOT CASH DONATION TOWARD THE BUILDING FUND FOR THE UNIVERSITY. MORE APPLAUSE RANG OUT FROM THE CROWD.

    ADDRESSING THE GATHERING, THE PRINCE SAID HE WOULD PROPOSE "A FRIENDSHIP AND NON-AGGRESSION PACT" WITH NORTH VIETNAM WHEN HE VISITED HANOI NEXT OCTOBER. THROUGH THIS TREATY, THE TWO COUNTRIES WOULD UNDERTAKE MUTUALLY TO RESPECT THEIR INDEOLOGIES AND REGIMES AS WELL AS THEIR TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY. IF NORTH VIETNAM AGREED TO THIS TREATY, THEN CAMBODIA WOULD ESTABLISH NORMAL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH HANOI.

    WHILE SHOWING A MODEL OF THE UNIVERSITY TO NEWSMEN, THE PRINCE STRESSED THAT CAMBODIA'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS OTHER COUNTRIES WAS BASED STRICTLY ON RECIPROCITY AND THAT CAMBODIA ALWAYS ANSWERED FRIENDLINESS WITH FRIENDLINESS. HE THEN LAID THE FOUNDATION STONE WHICH WAS WITNESSED BY THE CROWD.
